KINTSUGI

Kintsugi - the Japanese art of repairing with gold.
Back in 2012 I sold an Herbarium Stone which got broken in the meanwhile. The owner asked me if I could repair it and I did using real gold.
 
Kintsugi - arte Japonesa de reparar com ouro.
Em 2012 vendi uma Pedra Herbário que entretanto partiu-se. A dona da peça pediu-me se eu a reparava e assim o fiz com folha de ouro.
